We were on a long bike ride and stopped for a rest break. Excellent company and customer service. Would advise it for families or couples alike.

We ate breakfast here. It was pretty good - nothing to rave about. A bit grungy but when it's called a "diner" it seems grungy is a prerequisite.

The breakfast poutine is 10/10. The service is exactly what you want from a diner and even the decor makes you feel right at home. Every Saturday morning I wish I was here.

After an exhausting day hiking our host Chloe made us feel at home. Friendly interaction & willing to meet our needs was very much appreciated. The food & milk shakes were delicious. BBQ Ribs sensational. Sam willing to stay extra time to facilitate. Highly recommended.

This is a simple diner that has great service and food. The portion sizes are big so you may struggle to finish if your not used to such portion sizes. Overall great value for money...

Hey Pablo, We're so glad you liked the bennie and cappuccino! The Whistler pace is more relaxed to be sure, but our team are pros who want to make sure our guests don't feel rushed. We look forward to inviting you back. Cheers, The Diner...More
